Summer Camp


No Barriers’ Overnight Camps in Colorado

Adventure Camps & Trips

Update: All 2020 summer camps have been canceled. Please see our Covid-19 Article for more info.

The No Barriers Mountain Campus is one step from wilderness and that’s how we like it! Our overnight camps in Colorado, including summer camps and trips, are located in an intentionally rustic playground that provides kids with a great balance of structured outdoor activity with enough space to connect and socialize with peers and play in our beautiful mountain setting.

We truly strive to provide one of the best overnight summer camps not only in Colorado, but in the entire United States!

How do we work towards providing experiences worthy of the best overnight summer camps?

We empower our participants to learn about themselves through a variety of adventure and leadership activities. Students can participate in rock climbing, a high ropes course, a zip line, team building games and activities, and much, much more. Campers also learn a variety of interpersonal skills through the day-to-day interactions with staff, structured play times, chore rotations, and group living with peers in their tents.

Our staff continuously celebrate the struggles, triumphs, and accomplishments throughout the day to help our campers break through barriers, gain valuable self-confidence, and have a phenomenal camp experience.


Check out the Adventure Camps and Adventure Trips schedules for 2020! Our summer programs for kids aged 10-17 are fun, but that’s just on the beginning. Each camp and trip is designed to enhance leadership, empower the kids and give them the opportunity to connect with new friends.


Registration for 2020 Adventure Camps and Trips is now open and filling fast. Sign up before January 31, 2020 and use code “ONROPE” for a $50 (adventure camps) or $75 (adventure trips) discount!



The No Barriers Mountain Campus is a pristine 144-acre playground located near Red feather Lakes, CO.  It is a natural paradise and perfect classroom for the experiential learning that takes place in our programs.

Our summer camps in Colorado are host to a variety of fun and adventurous activities including:

  • A natural Rock Peak for hiking and rock climbing
  • Ropes Course
  • Zip-Line
  • “Leap of Faith” high ropes element
  • Climbing Wall
  • 1,000s of acres of surrounding National Forest that we can explore including the magical mountain stream dubbed “Narnia” by our campers

Campers sleep in wooden framed platform tents and bunk beds to insure they get the rest needed for our jam-packed days of adventure. Campers also take turns helping with meal preparation and clean-up in our health-department inspected outdoor kitchen which is a great tool for teaching leadership, communication, and at times conflict resolution.  All campers have access to our modern bathroom house and showers (although showers are not a requirement during our 5-day camps).


Need help paying for summer camp? As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, No Barriers receives donations from compassionate individuals and corporate donors to fund summer camp financial aid. We strongly encourage families in need of financial help to apply for summer camp scholarships; in fact, we set aside specific awards to become summer camp scholarships for low income families.

We strive to help all who have a desire to attend our summer camps in Colorado, so please don’t be shy in applying!

The sleepaway camp scholarships will award amounts that vary depending on the family’s need and the funds available. Find the summer camp scholarship application here or to request a hard-copy, please contact our office at (970) 484-3633 and we’ll be happy to mail you one.

Getting immersed in the culture of India and getting to know and love the children was the greatest. When the students would cling to me at the end of class, and tell me how much they enjoyed having me there was heartbreaking.

There is so much life, happening all the time. It's crazy to think that, after only three weeks, I feel like I've become accustomed to so much of how the world move.

I just wanted to take a moment to formally thank you for another unbelievable and life changing trip. No Barriers Youth made it all possible and took the guesswork out of a potentially nerve wracking and complicated task.
